Evolution 'stole' messages from hotmail inbox


Hi, I just installed ubuntu for the first time today, and setup Evolution to check my email from my hotmail account. All went fine, I downloaded all my emails from the last 7 years but then when I actually logged in to my email account on hotmail.com all of my messages were gone and my inbox empty. I was hoping that it would downlaod a copy of my messages - I still want a copy in my hotmail inbox for backup just in case something happens to my computer. Anyway, so my question is there a way to put them back into my hotmail account? I know its not as though I have lost them forever, I just would like the last 7 years of important emails on there in just in case.
Cheers,

I'm not familiar with hotmail (don't use it or msn or yahoo), but in Settings on webmail server there may be an option to "keep mail on server" using IMAP (not POP). Try that.

There is a setting in Evolution (and most POP clients, I think) to leave the messages on the server: http://library.gnome.org/users/evolu...tml.en#bsu2e8x. I'm not sure how to put them back on the server after the fact though...
